Dr. V. Diego Ortega del Vecchyo

Diego obtained his Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2016 under the cotutorship of John Novembre and Kirk Lohmueller. His graduate research was focused on how demographic history impacts the genetic variation of alleles under natural selection using genomic information from canines and humans. Following his PhD studies, he did a Postdoc with Montgomery Slatkin, where he developed new methods to analyze past population history using genomic data from ancient and present-day samples. At LIIGH, he aims to leverage large-scale genomic datasets in order to develop statistical methods to infer the past history of various species and to understand how natural selection changes patterns of genetic and haplotypic variation.
